Routine Text & Email Messages

Classroom teachers and activity sponsors increasingly use the Remind messaging service to send texts and emails to students and parents. (Individual student messages are restricted to ages 13 and up.)

By default, Remind uses parent and class information from PowerSchool, but teachers and sponsors can also share codes that anyone can text to 81010. For example, to join a Remind group with the code math, you could text @math to the number 81010.



Emergency & Automated Phone/Text Messages to Patrons

The district still sends out emergency phone and text messages, such as weather-related school closing notices, via SchoolMessenger to contacts in our PowerSchool database. It also sends out routine automated messages about absences and lunch balances.

Please contact your child's school to verify your contact information in PowerSchool is up-to-date. To receive SchoolMessenger texts, text "subscribe" to the number 68453. (Text "stop" to 68453 to cancel your subscription to texts, or text "help" to 68453 for more information.)
